These colors scream "Fall or Autumn" to me. Welcome to another week of Create with Connie & Mary as we embark you on a color challenge!

My Create card:

One of my favorite stamps is the....well, I'm not sure what to call it but "splotch, splash, splat, blotch"? image from "French Foliage". Notice how I filled in my DSP background layer with the stamp?

My pearls, they're brown? Yes! I used 9 of them, tapped my VersaMark Ink Pad on them and sprinkled Early Espresso Embossing Powder and heat set with my Heat Tool. How cool is that?

 Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Gumball Green, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip
  • Inks: Chocolate Chip, Summer Starfruit, Chocolate Chip, VersaMark
  • Stamps: Full of Blessings, French Foliage
  • Accessories: 3/8" Stitched Ribbon in Gumball Green, Pearl Jewels
  • Tools: Delicate Doilies Sizzlits, Big Shot Machine, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, Ticket Duo Builder Punch, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, Heat Tool, Early Espresso Embossing Powder, Blender Pen
